It was in the 1990s and I was at a non-formal education centre (we still had them in those days) for working children in Kerala. The children ranged from 8-12 years, had worked the whole day and were in this centre at night. Their instructors were trying to teach them basic literacy skills and finding it difficult as the children were tired and uninterested. I looked at the primer being used – it seemed to have nothing to do with children’s lives at all! That was when I asked if we could converse with the children through an interpreter and was told they would not respond.
